Outstanding Patient Advocate in Southwest Virginia

Nancy Carter is one exceptional lady, or, in Nancy’s case, RxCeptional. She has helped more than 800 uninsured people get the medications they need for free.

Nancy works as a Pharmacy Advocate at Clinch River Health Services, in Southwest Virginia, using The Pharmacy Connection to obtain free medications for her uninsured patients. She has single-handedly obtained $4.9 million in free medications for uninsured residents of Southwest Virginia in the past five years.

When asked what inspires her, she replied, “The patients do.”  No wonder they all love her!

For her tremendous dedication to the people she serves, Nancy was awarded the Virginia Health Care Foundation’s “You RxCeptional Award” in 2004.
